I was born and raised in a family of eight children in a small town in Vietnam. Growing up, my family had big dreams and aspirations. I am no exception. When I was a kid, I was always curious and creative. I would take apart toys and electronics to look at their inner mechanics. I used the deconstructed pieces and created my own toys and gadgets. Growing up, I dreamed of becoming an engineer and sharing my ideas and ingenuity with the world.
Our family lived in a small and underdeveloped town in Vietnam. Expanding my knowledge would be impossible to accomplish in such a town. In 2009, my parents decided to uproot our family and give up everything to move to America. Moving to the United States would give my family and myself the ability to pursue our dreams. Since the first day our family was in America, I have worked relentlessly to pursue my dream of becoming an engineer. Stepping out of my comfort zone in Vietnam was a challenge. However, my hard-work and dedication has thrusted me one step closer to reaching my dreams of becoming an electrical engineer.
By joining America Needs You, I am taking another step forward towards making my dream a reality. ANY is a fantastic program that offers opportunities to network and build strong relationships. I believe ANY will help me grow both personally and professionally. I am excited to be a part of the program.
